    How to Best Manage Self-Doubt

    How to Best Manage Self-Doubt

    A lot of us go through self-doubt. In fact, 85% of people are battling with low self-esteem. The truth be told, the belief in oneself can really hold us back personally and professionally. So how do we let go of self-doubt when it comes to us at the most inconvenient time? Take a minute to breathe. The best way to really unlock this is through deep acceptance. 
     
    Who you are, this human being, is exactly who you’re meant to be. You can always grow and expand, but who you are today is a strength. It’s completely okay to not know the answers to everything. It’s okay to feel scared or insecure. It’s all okay. Your self-doubt is only here to protect you. You're completely capable of learning what you currently don’t know. 
     
    If you punish yourself for not knowing all the answers, this is your sign to remember that you’re just human. You are showing up in the best way possible. Another important point to think back to when you’re feeling self-doubt is that you’re not alone. There are many successful people like you who have been in the same position you’re currently in. You don’t have to walk this journey alone!

    How to Create Emotional Safety in Your Relationship

    How to Create Emotional Safety in Your Relationship

    Emotional safety is when we are in a relationship with someone where we feel 100% safe and secure with that person. We feel seen and respected when we’re with this person, and we’re not afraid to share what we’re thinking even if it feels vulnerable. A healthy relationship has emotional safety and trust in it. To be completely vulnerable and intimate with someone, you have to feel safe! 
     
    However, when relationships don’t have it, it can be almost impossible to feel authentic intimacy. We might feel like we have to hide pieces of ourselves in order for us to ‘be whole’ in the relationship. Instead of just ‘being’, we feel like we have to fit in, even if it means compromising our sense of self. It can be very hard to feel emotional safety in a relationship like this because you’re not able to freely express yourself. 
     
    So, how do we truly know we’re in an emotional safe place vs. unsafe place? The first indicator is how that person shows up when you set boundaries. Do they listen to you? Do they get upset? What is their reaction? 
     
    It’s important to recognize that emotional safety does build overtime as you get to know your partner better. It can actually be a very slow boil to build up trust with someone new. When you dive too quickly into a relationship, you might not be giving the relationship the space it needs to prosper, and to really understand whether your partner is a good candidate for emotional safety. 
     
    The good news is that, through conflict, there is opportunity for growth. If you’re having conflict with your partner, this can actually be a good thing because you’ve been given the chance to know more about your partner in a unique way. As long as the conflict doesn’t turn toxic, you can continue to build trust and safety, which will eventually lead to emotional safety!

    The Inside-Out Approach to Self-Care

    The Inside-Out Approach to Self-Care

    Self-care has become such a buzzword these days. Corporations and businesses have really capitalized on this by providing the public with a whole variety of products centered around self-love. You can easily pick up a facemask or a bath bomb to ‘instantly’ make yourself feel loved. 
     
    However, although they might make you feel good, none of these things address the inner self. They’re designed for the external. To really practice self-care, it’s about getting in touch with your needs and wants. You need to work on the ‘self’ and that can be really uncomfortable. 
     
    What does self-care really look like? It means taking the time to notice your feelings and putting a label on them throughout the day. That doesn’t always feel good to do. It can actually be hard to recognize what this ‘feeling’ is when you’re so used to just going through the emotions of your day. 
     
    Self-care is all about doing things that help us grow and heal. Take an inside approach to your self-care next time you’re having a bad day or just need a day off and see what kind of feelings and emotions arise from it. They might surprise you!

    The Six Ways to Attract Abundance and Prosperity Into Our Life

    The Six Ways to Attract Abundance and Prosperity Into Our Life

    People who appear to be well-off might not actually be well-off at all. Appearances can be deceiving and a successful career doesn’t always translate into happiness and fulfillment. We need to remember that the pictures we see on the outside aren’t always the reality. This is important to keep in mind when you’re working on your own personal journey to abundance and prosperity.
     
    Abundance and happiness truly begins within yourself. The relationship with yourself is the most important relationship you’re going to have. However, growing up, we have internalized the belief that we don’t deserve abundance or prosperity that we really would like. We are taught success is only achieved in one way, and that happiness can only be given to those who are ‘successful’. 
     
    We have to adjust our perspective and thoughts around it. There are six tools you can use to further cultivate this. The first is to start a gratitude practice. Second, stop dwelling on the past. Third, don’t be afraid to be honest about what you want. Fourth, recognize and appreciate your own abilities. Fifth, put out what you want to attract. Everything is a reflection of your thoughts. And finally, prioritize both your physical, mental and emotional health.

    How to Love Yourself

    How to Love Yourself

    Not a lot of people fully embrace themselves and love themselves for who they truly are. Self-love is a hard concept because we’ve been fed messages that we’re not worthy, we’re not enough, or in some way flawed for not being XYZ. However, self-love is one of the best ways for us to feel whole and complete. 
     
    What is self-love? It goes beyond spa days. Those are nice, but self-love is finding new or unique ways to love yourself for who you are. It puts the power back into your shoes. Most people find their love from external forces, which sets them up for disappointment. We seek this external validation from co-workers, partners, or even our children. 
     
    There’s nothing wrong with looking for validation from outside of ourselves. We are relational beings after all, but it can be harmful to your sense of self if you consistently thrive on this external validation. If you’re unable to get satisfaction from within yourself, then that’s when we adopt unhealthy coping mechanisms and patterns.

    Want Healthy Relationships? It Starts with Your Boundaries.

    Want Healthy Relationships? It Starts with Your Boundaries.

    We want to have long and healthy relationships with people. We also want to be our own person and yet, oftentimes, we think we can’t be our own person, have boundaries, and have friends at the same time! Because of this limiting belief, we will shy away from setting boundaries because we don’t want the very people we love to abandon us. 
     
    However, if you don’t set boundaries, then how would you be able to maintain your whole self? You begin to get into a pattern where you’re over-functioning and serving other people and you are at risk of losing your sense of self. You’re teaching people how to treat you, and even the most well-intentioned people might unknowingly take advantage of that. 
     
    Codependency begins to fester when the lines are blurred between how people should and shouldn’t treat you. Do you know what your limits are? Boundaries give people a guideline on how you want to be treated. Through that, you’re able to develop deep relationships based on respect, care, and love.
